The Bitlocker recovery system!
WTH is this thing! It blocks my system on start-up, and I've tried all the on-screen suggestions to get rid of it. The only thing that seems to work is restarting it twice. This is awful. I don't think it's the hardware. Pretty sure this is Microsoft's fault, especially since they won't discuss it with me via chat or over the phone. This is a huge annoyance and I just bought this computer.

Many microsoft products are not intutitive, yet the service is non existent, or it sucks. Why? Just like this experience now. IT goes nowhere and is a waste of time.
Login to Microsoft Account without entering Password
Hi Everyone, I would like to share you little trick with Microsoft Account (including the one you used to login to this website) and it is you are able to login in Microsoft Account without entering username and password. To do that you will need to do some setup on your Microsoft Account which are posted here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4463210/windows-10-sign-in-microsoft-account-windows-hello-security-key After that use Microsoft Edge and visit any website where it asked for Microsoft Account and then in menu click on "Sign in with a security key" and follow steps to login.

What percentage of your friends, family are computer savvy?
For me only about 50%... We all know that computers are not going away anytime soon. I have used a computer for 25 years. I know many people, younger and older who do not want to know anything about computers and I know an equal amount of people, younger and older who thrive on their smartphones and PCs. About 7 years ago my 80 year old neighbor made me realize that I need a tablet; if he could use it, I could certainly learn! I feel like the knowledge I have gained from the Windows Community has both enhanced my knowledge and created many new acquaintances as well! 😊 Hey Microsoft people, can you design a video to convince others how easy it is to operate a computers or smartphone?
7/14-7/15/2020 update froze my monitor/computer
Be on the lookout. When I booted up, it would show the W10 screen, then I would log in... it would start bringing up my files and my monitor would scramble and I had no control with the keyboard. Tried it twice more, same results. Wound up choosing a "Restore" point and now my computer works again. Just a heads up folks.
Home Network Issues
My home network, Wi-Fi based, lacks stability in that it often fails to present in File Explorer networked PCs I intend to access. When this happens, I have to leave the computer I am using to go to the target PC to perform what's needed. It's really a problem of inconsistency ("now you see me, now you don't"). Each PC is setup on the network by simply entering the password for AT&T gateway/modem, without creating any kind of homegroup or workgroup, etc., etc. Where am I going wrong? Is there a tried and true home network setup method that I can use to avoid this annoyance? Any help this community can provide would be greatly appreciated. By way of background, let me say this: System: Windows 10 Home, 64-bit Connectivity: Wi-Fi Number of Pcs: 6 Thanks. ca le

Toggle Keys beep AND .NET audio methods stopped working
I always use "Toggle keys" feature. Press Caps, Num Lock beep suddenly stopped working. This matter is widely reported returns many suggestions which I followed without resolution. The audio troubleshooter reports no issues. Windows sound events and music work perfectly. THIS MUST BE RELATED! I develop in .NET and these 2 audio methods NO LONGER EMIT SOUND. My speakers are not muted; using maximum volume; also using headset - NO AUDIO is emitted. * System.Console.Beep(); * System.Media.SystemSounds.Beep.Play(); Both Toggle & .NET audio stopped working at the same time.
Since the last windows update I've not been able to switch between audio outputs. Normally I can click on the speaker icon and change my output from there, but now it just doesn't switch. I have a 4 channel sound card plus a link to my Bluetooth speakers Anybody else having this problem? Dave
Hello Windows Community. I am using Lenovo Legion Y530, and for some reason sometimes when I click shutdown, I see the shutdown circle and then my screen just goes black but the laptop does not shutdown, so I always have to do a hard shutdown (force shutdown by holding the power button for a couple of seconds) After I power it on after that, my screen just goes black after the Legion Logo, and I have to wait for a couple of minutes to it to show the log in screen, there is nothing I can do as not key combinations work at this stage! Can you guys please help me, I really do not know why this problem happens!? As you guys know, I try to keep my PC on perfect state, so I really do not know why this would happen 🤔 Every help is appreciated. ( 2004 version, build 19041.450) ( GTX1060, i5-8300H, 16GB RAM, SSD+HDD) Have a great day!
